  • Intelligent Fuzzy Chaotic Control of a Two-Link Rigid Robot Arm

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (622 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A new intelligent fuzzy chaotic control is proposed for two-link rigid robot arm. The system could have a chaotic behavior by applying a proper input. At the first step, input amplitude is varied in chaotic range, then the unstable period orbits (UPOs) of the plant, by using the Poincare map, and the convenient gains, are found for each amplitude. At the second step, maximum changed value of UPOs,... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 2009, Page(s):11 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (431 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are tools located inside computer networks that analyze the network traffics. In this paper, a novel fuzzy-evolutionary system is presented to effectively detect the intrusion in computer networks. This system utilizes a hybridization of simulated annealing heuristic and tabu search algorithm to improve the accuracy of fuzzy if-then rules as intrusion detectors. E... View full abstract»

    The role of context for better decision-making has been a topic of significant research effort over the years. Context-aware systems are able to adapt their operations to the current context without explicit user intervention and thus aim at increasing usability and effectiveness by taking environmental context into account. These systems exploit information about the context of use, such as the l... View full abstract»

    Solar energy is rapidly advancing as an important means of renewable energy resource. More energy is produced by tracking the solar panel to remain aligned to the sun at a right angle to the rays of light. This paper describes in detail the design and construction of a prototype for solar tracking system with two degrees of freedom, which detects the sunlight using photocells. The control circuit ...

    This paper presents investigations into modeling and active vibration control (AVC) of a flexible plate structure using continuous ant system algorithm (CASA) such structures. The optimization technique is utilized to obtain a dynamic model of a flexible plate structure based on auto-regressive with exogenous (ARX) input model structure. The flexible plate structure is subjected to two different d... View full abstract»

    Parametric modelling of dynamic structure may benefits from features of particle swarm optimization (PSO), which robust and fast in solving nonlinear, non-differentiable, and multimodal problems. This paper presents the PSO approach which includes an improved algorithm to model a flexible plate structure parametrically. The introduction of a dynamic spread and momentum factor, both by modifying th... View full abstract»

    Cellular Learning Automata (CLA) is one of the newest optimization methods for solving NP-hard problems. The Job Shop Scheduling Problem (JSSP) is one of these problems. This paper, proposes a new approach for solving the JSSP using CLA with two kinds of actions' set. By generating actions based on received responses from the problem environment, appropriate position for operations of jobs is chos... View full abstract»

    Content management is increasingly becoming a complex task. The Future Internet is expected to provide services which is content centric. The multimedia content described syntactically, semantically, but these powerful capabilities remain untapped and this results in diminishing benefits. In the research, how the content intelligently forward based on various things such as intent, knowledge base,... View full abstract»

    Robot path planning in known and dynamic environments is feasible for mobile robots and its main purpose is to find a collision free path for a robot from an initial position to a goal position in an environment with obstacles. In this paper the goal position is assumed to be moving over the time. Also our environment includes moving obstacles as well as static ones. We present a new approach for ... View full abstract»

    Vehicular movements are bounded to some rules and regulations based on the environment and road networks. Visual signals are the most common way of transferring perception of motion to immediate vehicles but these indications do not portray correct perception of the motion. Visual indications are reserved for forward vehicle intensions but such indications can not provide surety of avoiding collis... View full abstract»

    Diabetes is a common disease, and one in which the patient has to undergo many lifestyle changes. In this paper we propose a model in which fuzzy logic can be used to determine the amount of insulin to be dosed to a diabetic, without the person having to calculate the same every half hour. Such systems have already been proposed, and we have worked based on already existing papers. This system use... View full abstract»
